Six separate avalanches were noted today on Westerly and North-West aspects. One was triggered on the Chais Headwall. There has been a lot of drifting and new windslab is overlying the soft snow from yesterday. This is making the snowpack very unstable and the picture below demonstrates the windslab failing on isolation on the soft snow beneath. Drifting on across the Chais ridge on a strong Easterly wind.
